    It is so sad to see fall and join the anti-family crowd. Unfortunately, I cannot share this newsletter with my three hams under 12, and if I cannot share it with my family, I’m not interested in it either!

  • Larry VE7VJ:

    Interesting list as always. I shall have to dig out my 817 and blow the dust off.
    And, no, I don’t know why I need all these radios 😛
